TCW - "The Hidden Enemy"

In this installment of TCW, we get two highly controversial things: a traitor clone and a prequel storyline.

It turns out that this episode actually takes place before the Clone Wars movie. While I think it's great to show backstory, it was rather jarring to see this episode with absolutely no indication that it took place outside of the main timeline. It's something that I definitely don't like.

Having a clone be a traitor was very... odd. While it makes sense that there'd be a bad clone made every now and then, what didn't make sense was the mixed moral message. Once again, I really wish that this series would stop attempting to insert moral messages in its narrative. Thus far, it just doesn't work.

Oh well. The action scenes were nice.
